Questions & Answers

Which is better for a beginner to build shelving / bookcase; sliding miter saw or table saw

Asked by: TG
Definitely agree with "Sing". But for a little more than the price of this excellent Rigid CMS, you can have both! Look at the Ryobi 10" CMS (12" crosscut capacity) and the Ryobi 10 in. Portable Table Saw with Quick Stand (27" rip capacity). These saws are excellent entry level DIY tools. They are easy to store and easy to move around. Craftsman also has comparable saws. Watch all the YouTube videos on table saw safety! Saws do not cut...they cut off!!!

Does this saw have a stop and depth setting for dado cuts?

Asked by: Undone
It does but it appears worthless. The depth adjustment is very minor and you need to be careful not to hit the bottom under the table. The non-sliding miter saw has a much deeper cut and I never had to worry about depth. I just upgraded from a Ridged 10" non-slider to a 10" slider and I am disappointed at how shallow the cut goes. Not sure what I'll do now. Maybe go back and check out a DeWalt slider.

Does this 10" saw fit a specific Ridgid stand? If so, which stand accomodates this saw?

Asked by: Don
This saw can fit almost any stand. I use a folding delta to move it around. Rigid stand is a lot better constructed.

If I buy this saw online, it still comes with the lifetime warranty correct?

Asked by: WoodWerx
Yes the Ridgid sliding miter saw come with a life time warranty if purchases online or in the store. You must redgiater the saw with Ridgid to obtain the warranty or settle for a three year warranty,if not registered.

10 in. Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Dual Laser Guide is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 211.

The table was square to the fence and the blade was perpendicular to the table. My first cuts were dead on. The Diablo 40 tooth blade was put right to the test building Christmas tree stands cutting an entire pallet of pressure treated fence boards. I stacked them 3 high and cut them into three 2 foot pieces. Almost two hours of constant cutting The Diablo blade and Ridgid saw work great together, quick smooth cuts. I like both the soft start and the blade breaking. The soft start allowed the saw and shop vac to share the same outlet. No tripping of the circuit breakers.

If you are a wood butcher with a framing axes on hip this is not the saw for you, buy a DeWalt 12" sliding miter but if you are stain grade finish craftsman you will love this saw. For twice or even 3 times the price you can't beat this saw. The soft start, center handle, ambidextrous trigger, front controls and blade brake give the cabinet quality craftsman a saw that can reduce his work load and make accurate reputable cuts. The dust collection pickup needs a little attention as do all miter saws but is a easy fix with a duct tape extension. The saw came set at dead on zero and the diablo blade is plus. The double laser can help production and gravity light is nice extra if you are cutting in low light conditions. In my opinion Ridgid set a new standard for finish miter saws with this 10 inch beauty.

Great set of features, having the Miter and Bevel controls out front are great, cut 30+ pieces of baseboard and trim, most with 45 degree cuts and they lined up great every time. The power cord management is a nice touch, the 3 handles make moving this heavy saw easier, the Miter detents lock-in nice and solid. The included blade is excellent. I can't think of a negative or non-solid bit about this saw, extremely happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Well Thought Out Design I have used many many miter saws and use them daily (as a hardwood flooring installer, among many other carpentry tasks) over the last 12 years or so. Some cheap, some expensive (including Festool Kapex) and everything in between. I won't go into deep thought or detail about this $349 saw, because I don't think it's necessary. instead I will say this, it is solid and heavy, it is presise, has every feature as a saw costing much more(and alot they don't have i.e. the front bevel lock is just so sweet, you never have to reach behind the saw, led gravity light, crown stop on the slide, brilliant). Don't procrastinate like I did for the last 5mo just order it now before they sell out of them....again . Can't wait to get the Ridgid Miter saw stand too .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Saw Well I bought this 5 years ago so I better give this sucker a review. Awesome power, accurate right out of the box. Wish it had a shadow line cut guide, red laser line

I've owned this saw for several years now, and it's served me well for this-and-that projects. Only one warning (at least on mine) - when you tighten down the back fence, it goes out of square with the table. This can be a real pain with crown molding if you're doing it with the crown against the fence and making only a °45 cut. The crown markings are rather vague and a bit off, so, the only downside to this saw would be for crown molding cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features!! First started with a craftsmen and returned it next day because a rough slide track and it needed alot of adjustments. When unpacked the saw the first thing that caught my attention was that this saw came with a Freud Diablo Saw blade. After setting this on the Ryobi Miter Saw Stand I was really impressed to discover that it was out-of-box trued. Made several test cuts various angles and wow, no adjustments needed.The soft start is great, lasers and LED light fantastic, and the slide track smooth and solid. Wish I bought this set up sooner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More than Satisfactory I've now had my saw approximately two months, used it half a dozen times including both the miter and bevel and have had no problems - and have been very satisfied. And the slider? Smooth as glass. Yes, the laser is off maybe a sixteen of an inch, but rather than attempt to adjust, I just made note of where it cut and adjust myself. And still the laser has been quite helpful. I made a picture frame spot on, have used it with 4x4s and yard timbers, just built a ramp for the elderly, took a stab at crown molding with success, and have been completely satisfied so far. Time will tell, but I did quite a bit of research, and for the money vs. what was offered, felt this the best deal going I could find. Have not been disappointed so far.
